Dirt, cold, formaldehyde, and mold edition. Shares needed.

I feel like I'll never be able to breathe properly again. Never stop coughing, either.

This tin can isn't helping. No insulation, and the gaps around every opening let in the cold and the dust, and when the winds are what they've been the last two weeks? And none of that even includes the fact that this whole place is riddled with both formaldehyde and mold. Yes, mold. Wings had to saturate the bathroom with bleach again. It grows on the floor, a product of all the leaks in this place. Seven winters is more than six winters too long.

And I've got to get well enough to go back to painting before Tony and Carlos get back next Monday. As of Thursday, it'll be two weeks since I've even been able to leave the house (okay, RV; I've spent zero time in the actual house, such as it is). There's no end to it, and unfortunately, there's no end to what it's going to take to get us out of this toxic place, but I have to find a way somehow. Among other things, that means shares:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowe's gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. We're having to spring for lumber, lath, and plaster material locally. The rest of what makes it habitable — flooring, paint, appliances, etc. — are coming from Lowe's, which is giving us the best selection and price, and therefore best bang for our buck, but it's still a lot. A LOT. And so one of the best, most immediate ways to help at this point is with Lowe's gift cards. I have three separate denominations posted on the wishlist, but cards in any amount whatsoever are useful; they all go into the same pool. We're going to have to take care of the flooring very, very soon.
Still, before you share our links, please go share Laura's. Lin's spirit is where the water meets the light, but Laura will still need our help for a while. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

In the meantime, please also take a moment to share the links above.

Thanks, everyone. I'm going back to bed. There's not enough sleep in the world to make up for what I've lost these last two weeks.
